I usually only "cook" a couple of times a week, especially since my husband would be ok eating a sandwich every meal of his life. It's been only recently that with Addison pretty much eating "real" food now, I'm having to ask myself this question 3 times a day...at least as far as what she's eating anyways.
So....I am looking for ideas, and PLEASE share what works for your family or what your kiddos enjoy for easy, go to meals/snacks. I'm going to share a few of my favs to start out, but Addison can only eat a waffle or quesadilla so many times a day, so please add to the list!
Favorite tool I never used in my kitchen until now, but probably now use it 4 times a day....
The Pizza Cutter! This thing is perfect for cutting through waffles, sandwiches, quesadillas, to get them into perfect bite sized portion Quickly.
Lunch: Quesadilla : spray pam (w/butter flavor) on a tortilla, add cheese and Fat Free refried beans, fold over and "toast" on each side of a non-stick skillet (her very favorite)
Dinner: We are having creative issues in this area...but I did recently discover Morningstar Veggie Bites (Broccoli and cheese) and she loves them!!
Dinner for Mom/Dad : easy, healthy go to and fast
Throw a couple of boneless chicken breasts in a crock pot with a can of Rotel and 1 cup of chicken broth. Cook on high for two hours and low for two hours. Done! Very good flavor....usually I serve it up with Spanish style lipton sides and if I'm feeling really adventurous and not so healthy, I top it with Chuy's creamy jalapeno sauce.
Ok, now it's your turn, please, I'm begging you....
